In Arabidopsis, the induction of a dehydration-responsive gene, rd22, is mediated by abscisic acid (ABA) and requires protein biosynthesis for ABA-dependent gene expression. Previous experiments established that a 67-bp DNA fragment of the rd22 promoter is sufficient for dehydration- and ABA-induced gene expression and that this DNA fragment contains two(More)
To determine the possible involvement of NMDA and muscarinic activation of the perirhinal cortex in object discrimination, an NMDA antagonist, D,L-2-amino-5-phosphonopentanoic acid (AP5), and a muscarinic antagonist, scopolamine (SCP) were injected into the perirhinal cortex of rats. Each drug at the higher dose (AP5 60 mM, SCP 80 mM) significantly(More)
The phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) is known to be a negative regulator of legume root nodule formation. By screening Lotus japonicus seedlings for survival on an agar medium containing 70 microM ABA, we obtained mutants that not only showed increased root nodule number but also enhanced nitrogen fixation. The mutant was designated enhanced nitrogen(More)
